Peony Pavillion Performance by Zhan Jun, UNESCO Artist for Peace

From November 29 to December 2, 2012, in a major program devoted to Chinese Garden Culture, celebrated composer Tan Dun’s updated version of the 16th-Century Kunqu opera masterpiece “Peony Pavilion” starring Zhang Jun, UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) Artist for Peace, will be performed in The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Astor Court. Co-produced by The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the US China Cultural Institute (USCCI), it will be a highlight of the Metropolitan Museum’s eight-gallery exhibition “Chinese Gardens: Pavilions, Studios, Retreats” now on view. The exhibition is described by The New York Times as “Paradises lost and found; nature blooming and fading; cosmological events transpiring in backyard bamboo groves.” By staging the Peony Pavilion in the Astor Court, which is situated at the center of the exhibition galleries, the Museum is seeking to introduce new ways of integrating the fine arts with the performing arts as a way of further enriching the cultural experience of its audience.
